Electric Zoo Promises To Be Breed Apart From Other Festivals


We’re still weeks away from Memorial Day and the official start of summer, but electronic music fans in the New York City tristate area can look forward to the upcoming Electric Zoo festival, which will be held on Labor Day weekend. The two-day event produced by Made Events will take place on September 5-6th at Randall’s Island Park. The festival will feature performances from the usual list of big-name house and trance DJs like Armin Van Buuren, Benny Benassi, Danny Tenaglia, Roger Sanchez, Luciano, Robbie Rivera, Marco Carola, David Guetta, Ferry Corsten, Richie Hawtin, Markus Schulz, LCD Soundsystem’s James Murphy and Pat Mahoney, Frankie Knuckles, and more to be announced. Want to hear drum ‘n’ bass, techno or dubstep? Well, you’re shit out of luck (so far).

Tickets for the event are currently available as single-day passes at $55 and double-pack two-day passes at $100 for General Admission. VIP single-day passes are available at $120 and VIP double-pak two-day passes at $225. VIP passes include a separate VIP entrance, access to VIP lounge with private cash bar, exclusive viewing area at main stage and access to VIP-only deluxe bathrooms. Tickets are available at Electric Zoo’s website.

  1. Last I remember…Richie & Marco play techno!

  2. Richie rocks, but I doubt the people who pay good money to see Armin Van B will care about proper techno anyway, so that’s why it’s a pretty mainstream bill. Wish they would’ve done a dubstep area or something a little more underground. Well at least someone is doing something for the NY scene. Good deal.
